Great stuff! (5/5) Oct 25, 2011 Doug Ft. Lauderdale FL
  I'm a big fan of San Fransisco sourdough bread. I revived the starter and made probably the best loaf of bread I've ever made a week later. I've been baking bread on and off for over 25 years and I could never get the crumb/crust/taste like I wanted. I've been making a loaf a week for almost 6 months. The bread lasts almost a week (if no one eats it up) because of the sour culture- never any mold - and I don't refrigerate. Don't bother trying to make a starter- you may get something but who knows what? It probably won't be very good. The price and shipping at Breadtopia is very reasonable. Highly recommended. The book- 52 Loaves- very helpful also.
Very Happy (5/5) Jan 17, 2011 Tamara Robson Elgin SC US
  Thank you for making this starter available. I received it about 2 weeks ago and it came to life almost immediately. I am now making the best bread I've ever tasted thanks to Breadtopia (videos), the sourdough starter and my Romertopf. I've not worked with sourdough much before because I never had the kind of success I was looking for. Now I am having amazing success!
Makes Great Sourdough (5/5) Oct 15, 2010 Bob East Windsor NJ US
  Recieved about 10 days ago, fed it per the instructions , baked first loaf today. Excellent taste, tangy but not too sour. Probably the best sourdough I have had.
One suggestion; the starter arrives in a small ziplock and is very sticky. Instructions are to spoon it out. Instead I added the water to the bag, kneaded it a while, snipped off a corner and squeezed it out like a pastry bag into a crock, then fed it the flour. I believe I wasted a lot less starter that way and avoided a gooey mess.
Alive and Vigorous (5/5) Jul 3, 2011 Robert Ryan Columbus Oh US
  I was absolutely amazed by how vigorous this starter is. I fed it the evening that I received it using the provided instructions. After 24 hours, the starter was beautifully foamy and had the wonderful aroma I have come to expect from a great starter. It is so alive that it nearly doubled on its third feeding, for which I used equal weights of water and bread flour. Two more feedings, and I will bake bread!

I usually make my own starter, but when we moved to our current property, my starter was destroyed in the move. Buying live starter was a great way to get up and baking again quickly.
Great (5/5) May 27, 2014 Roger Hartwell Bloomington In US
  Fantastic. Great price, fast shipping. Solid Starter. Amazing bread. This starter is very active compared to others I have tried. More than once I've had it bubble over the top of my jar by mistake. I've never once had my old starter bubble over.
